South Beach at Night - The Place to Stay for Romantic Hotels in Miami & South Florida.By Greg Mattson, ERV Editor - Updated: Jul 18, 2014
Miami is called "America's Riviera", and with one trip down Ocean Blvd, it's easy to see why. The vibe and atmosphere of South Beach as well as the great weather make Miami & SoBe one of the top couples getaways in Florida.
So if you’re in the search for a romantic place to stay in the Miami area, including a resort and package for your honeymoon, check out our reviews of these romantic rooms in Miami...
The Betsy South Beach - consistently rated as one of the top 5 most romantic Miami hotels in South Beach. If your honeymoon or anniversary getaway in South Florida needs an Ocean Drive address but perhaps a little more on the quieter side, the Betsy is a fine place to stay. Oh, and make sure you take the elevator up to the rooftop lounge for their early evening happy hour - a very romantic place for a drink.
Pool and Hot Tub Area at the Hampton Inn & Suites - Miami Airport Blue Lagoon
Hampton Inn & Suites Miami Airport Blue Lagoon - can an airport hotel be romantic? Well, despite being a 20 minute drive to SOBE, we recently found this Hampton Inn a welcome relief from the high prices, valet-only parking and tiny rooms of many hotels on Ocean Dr.
It's great having a level of comfort like this so close to Miami's attractions. Our room contained 2 double beds, a separate living area with flat screen TV and couch, and a small but useful kitchen. Of Course, because it's a Hampton, there's free hot breakfast each morning downstairs. (We also discovered some authentic Cuban food at the strip mall across the street!) The only drawback to report is that traffic in the immediate area is busy and heavy.
Beacon Hotel – we can highly recommend this romantic South Beach hotel. Our 3 night stay at this art-deco classic gave us a perfect opportunity to check out the Beacon’s prime location on Collins Ave.
Rooms are cozy and immaculate with LCD TV’s, luxury linens, even beach chairs and towels. Great restaurants are just a walk away, and sunny and sandy Miami Beach is right across the street. Overall, we rate the Beacon as a excellent South Beach honeymoon hotel.
Special Deals & Honeymoon Packages: AA & Florida Resident discounts, reduced rates for multiple night stays, and honeymoons packages: the Amor package which includes chocolates, champagne and roses with an oceanfront room, and the TUYO package that gives you private time on the Beacon Hotel's rooftop for the 2 of you to enjoy wine & cheese with the great view.
Acqualina Resort & Spa - it's very difficult to find an all-inclusive honeymoon package anywhere in Miami Beach, but the Acqualina comes close: breakfast for two each morning, spa treatments, champagne, and a special romantic dinner on the beach.
Miami Honeymoon Suite - the Acqualina's one bedroom oceanfront King suite will do just nice, with huge oversize marble bathroom and Jacuzzi® tub, separate living room and gourmet kitchen, along with private terrace.
Pelican Hotel – jazz up your Florida getaway with these romantic Miami Beach theme rooms and suites. The lobby restaurant is popular for both breakfast and an award-winning wine list. (Honeymooner’s Tip: We hear that if you tell them it’s your honeymoon in Miami Beach, and they may just throw in a bottle of champagne for you!)
Grove Isle Hotel - imagine your honeymoon on a private South Florida island! A perfect destination wedding and honeymoon spot just 10 minutes drive from downtown Miami.
Their oceanfront romance package is ideal for honeymoons, and virtually all-inclusive with luxury bayfront room, daily breakfast in bed, nightly dining credit and a wine & cheese picnic basket.
